Siberia shaken by aftershocks after quake

Russia's emergencies minister says southwestern Siberia is still experiencing aftershocks following its magnitude-6.7 earthquake.
Sergei Shoigu reported to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that more than 25 aftershocks have occurred since Wednesday's quake near the city of Kyzyl. Shoigu said Thursday they have been occurring nearly every hour and measuring between 3 and 6.
Wednesday's quake damaged dozens of buildings in Kyzyl, but no injuries or deaths have been reported. Shoigu said 3,500 people were provided with temporary shelter, but most have returned to their homes.
The quake also damaged a key bridge over the Yenisei River en route to neighboring Mongolia.
